How to Manage Your Anxiety & Live a Peaceful Life

Q: I suffer from severe anxiety. I meditate regularly and I can relax and get into some deep states but when I finish up, I just go back to that state of hypervigilance. Have you got any advice?

ToddAnswers: So often our anxiety gives us anxiety. The best thing we can do besides practicing meditation is to turn our anxiety into curiosity, really examining it when it starts to occur and instead of resisting it being curious about it. This way we don’t only turn our anxiety into curiosity, but we also develop a greater understanding of it and we can see it start to happen and we can respond by either meditating or doing something that relaxes us.
